People will get to have their say on hospital services at an event next month.

The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King’s Lynn, is running a session at The Oasis Centre in Wisbech on March 5 at 6.30pm.

The hospital was placed in special measures in October after health watchdogs found staffing levels were inadequate, waiting times too long and its financial performance not satisfactory.

The hospital trust’s directors will be on hand to explain developments and listen to suggestions about how to improve services.

Chief executive of the hospital trust, Dr Manjit Obhrai, said: “We have been through some challenging times and we are working hard to improve the services we offer our patients.

“However, we really need to hear the views and opinions of those who use the hospital if we are to get it right for the future.

“This is an opportunity for anyone who wants to help shape their local hospital services to come along and meet the trust directors in an informal setting.

“It also gives us a chance to explain some of the new developments that have taken place since The Queen Elizabeth Hospital was placed in special measures last October.”

Other public listening events are being held in King’s Lynn, Swaffham, Hunstanton and Fakenham.
